Volvo Safety Looks Out for the Younger Generation

Volvo recently announced that its goal is to have no one killed or seriously injured in one of its vehicles by the year 2020. Well, part of that goal is focusing on child safety. It’s well known that child safety seats are the best place for young children in cars, so Volvo has designed a line of Child Safety Seats that prioritize rearward-facing design and comfortable materials—after all, if the kids won’t stay in the seats, they can’t do their job very well.

 

 

The Volvo line of child safety seats comes in a range of three sizes, able to accommodate children from infancy up to 10 years of age.

  • Infant Seat—this seat is rearward-facing and it’s suitable for children up to 13 kg or 1 year of age.
  • Child Seat—this seat is rearward-facing and it’s suitable for children from 9 months to 6 years of age.
  • Booster Seat—this seat is forward-facing and suitable for children that have outgrown the rearward-facing seats, from ages 3 to 10

 

“Our focus is on ensuring that young children travel in the safest manner possible, depending upon their size and age. This means rearward-facing up to the age of at least 3 or 4 years and after that with child seats or booster cushions up to 140 cm in height. The safety benefits are unquestionable, yet many parents unwittingly allow their children to sit forward-facing too early. One of the many reasons quoted for this is comfort – the child complains that there is not enough legroom, or is too warm due to the upholstery. We believe that children will be more comfortable in our rearward-facing new seat and that this will encourage parents to keep their children rearward-facing for longer. This will have a direct impact on overall child safety and support our Vision 2020, where no one will be killed or seriously injured in a Volvo car by the year 2020.” said Lotta Jakobsson, Adjunct Professor, PhD and Senior Technical Leader, Injury Prevention at Volvo Cars Safety Centre
